Chris Coleman house sit June 2016.

We could not have wished for better house sitters than chris and Norma. They were considerate, responsible and communicated with us excellently leading up to and during the sit. They were lovely people and we enjoyed the little time we spent with them. Both of our dogs were unexpectedly unwell just before the sit. Chris was unphased by this and managed medication etc. We were reassured and put at ease by chris who is clearly very experienced with animals. The house was left tidy and clean and the garden was very well cared for. We would not hesitate in recommending chris and Norma.

Efficient and caring house-sitter

Chris has house-sat for us three times now, looking after our two boisterous dogs, cat and chickens. He has always been extremely reliable and everything is immaculate when we arrive back home. The animals have been well cared for including grooming the dogs which is certainly over and above the remit of the house-sit and has even prepared a lovely supper for us when we returned home! Chris has also clearly taken care of the garden in our absence by watering and mowing the lawn. I can thoroughly recommend Chris as a house-sitter and am aware that he has a lot of experience.
